My mother wrote this in my autograph book when I was about 10 – and I have never forgotten it! I don’t know who wrote it – but a similar message has been conveyed by many motivational speakers over the years.
You are in charge of your own ship. You can choose to tap into your strengths and go where you want to – you can set your own sails. It’s not up to anyone else to do it for you. Circumstances can’t dictate your results. You dictate your own results. The time will never be right for many things – you have to find the right time. You can create ideal circumstances. It’s up to you.
If we set our sails in the right direction, we get the results we want. If you’re looking for happiness, then set your sails on gratitude. The practice of Gratitude has proven to be a key part of being happy – irrespective of your circumstances. Writing in a Gratitude Journal every day for 6 weeks has proven to contribute to your health and longevity too.
Decide whether you are going to set your sails to take advantage of the gales or if you are going to be one of those people who always complains conditions aren’t right. I know which kind of person is more fun to be around!
with love and gratitude
